Arshad Jackson did not wait very long on National Signing Day to finally choose Ole Miss over Florida State. At one time the Seminoles seems to have the lead for Jackson but the Rebels closed out the recruiting season strong and added a great talent to a much needed position.
The 6-6, 240-pound tight end out of Hampton, Georgia signed his National Letter of Intent at Lovejoy High School first thing Wednesday morning.
Jackson took his official visit to Ole Miss on the weekend of January 25.
Jackson, a one time Auburn commit, was getting the full court press from Florida State but in the end it was Ole Miss that would get the big athletic tight end.
Although it came down to Ole Miss and Florida State, Jackson pulled in offers from Michigan, Tennessee, Clemson, Auburn, Arkansas, South Carolina, Louisville, Mississippi State and many more.
With Jamal Mosely and Ferbia Allen exiting, Ole Miss will look to fellow signees Jackson and Chrisitan Morgan to take over the tight end position in the spread offense.
Jackson was selected to play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.
Arshad Jackson is No. 33 ranked player in the state of Georgia for the Class of 2013 according to 247Sports. He is also the No. 16 ranked tight end in the entire nation for the Class of 2013.
